KJV is a good bible, but it’s God’s truth
that saves, not the
arrangement of words and their syntax. I’ve heard folks say
Century English “was what Jesus spoke.” Another once told me,
language we’ll be speaking in Heaven.” Some think that prayers
be prayed in Old English. This is all bogus extremism that
world to believe that Christians are all crackpots.
Foreign language bibles cannot be translated into 16th-Century English, so I guess only those who speak English will be in heaven. Claiming that the KJV is “the most accurate” shows a woeful ignorance of the subject. Even the translators of the King James bible hoped that other, more accurate translations would supersede their effort. Find an old KJV bible and you’ll see it written on the introductory page.
Do you think today’s young people will embrace a bible they can barely understand? In our video-driven culture, today’s youth struggle with modern English. How much less will they understand or be interested in something written centuries ago?
